Yeah, I'm not picking this up...seems DC are slipping down the edgelord slope again with a lot of their titles and that's not their biggest strength. You'd think Rebirth would have taught them some much needed lessons over what people like.

You know I had not thought of that!

Grotesque getting an upgrade to the sadistic side is fine, but I don't want to see what Batgirl devolved into after the 15th issue of the New 52 series. Being a series that I have invested in along with Hal Jordan centered Green Lantern series I am hoping for the best for both series new directions.

DC is trying to expand its market by reprinting random issues with one brand new story under Batman, Superman, Justice League and Teen Titans. Of note Bendis will tackle Batman in a storyline titled "Universe" which depicts Batman lead on a globe trotting mystery by The Riddler. It will appear in September's 3rd issue, the beginning of a 12 parter.


This format was used in 1973-early 1975 as a early form of reprinting old issues and the covers emulate the mid 70s' format.

Interestingly, comic store owners are upset with the Wal-Mart exclusive so New York state shops arw going ro raid Wal-Mart stores outside of the state and resale them.

I saw that. Can't really say I'm interested, though.

I am only interested in the Batman 12 parter that Bendis is doing. Not the format and not for the writter. I am invested because of my favorite Batman villain and it being a globe trotter.

I was disappointed when reading the Batman Wedding prelude with Riddler vs Batgirl. Eddie stated he is a killer of innocents. I always saw The Riddler as a sane compulsive intellect. He only wants to kill Batman.

New York Times just spoiled the outcome of Batman#50.

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/07/0...be-batman.html

Spoiler:
Pretty much what I thought, a year-long bait and switch.

Well $hit. I can't say it's surprising, but it's damned disappointing.

So much for comics taking risks. Way to keep that status quo intact, King!

That's a pretty big "might". Still doesn't justify all the baiting King did over the last year.

Is anyone else confused about the overkill of sci-fi logic in the newest Justice League title? Seven ancient tribes, The Totality from the other side of the force wall, a Still Force, and Umbrex is the sun of a phantom universe which absorbs planets into its phantom universe, and why do Batman and Hawkgirl, Joker and Luthor need to shrink and go inside Superman and Martian Manhunter who should be in space suits? One bizarre concept is enough, but all of this is making my head spin not really grasping one before another pops up. I want to like this, but i don't really understand any of the above.

Dick Grayson to be shot in the head while on patrol with Bruce in Batman vol.3#54 fresh off his week subbing under the cowl. This plot is said to involve both Batgirl and this Heroes In Crisis mini-series. Not sure what to think other than DC especially under Didio knows what to do with Dick Grayson.

Dick having to rebuild and relearn basic skills would be reminscent of Barbara relearning basic skills after the experimential chip on her spine and return to patroling. As off as it seems be glad Barbara did not get mindwiped and literally decided to give up knowledge to allow her to relearn playing detective.

I can't think of a single good amnesia story other than The Bourne Identity. DC's tried it twice that I can think of--Bruce Wayne while Gordon piloted a robot-bat-bunny Batsuit, and Jason Todd after surviving "Death of the Family"--and they both really, really sucked.

Sounds like this third time might be the worst yet.

Brain-damaged amnesiac Dick Grayson confirmed. How delightful.
